Beautiful circular hike from Unterjoch via the Buchel Alpe and the idyllic Hörnlesee to Wertacher Hörnle.

Our hike takes us from Unterjoch in the Upper Allgäu to the 1695 m high Wertacher Hörnle on the northern edge of the Allgäu Alps. For the most part, we hike on narrow meadow paths with a moderate ascent to the summit. On the way, we enjoy the beautiful views of the foothills of the Alps in Upper and Eastern Allgäu.

Schöne Tour, leider war die Sicht sehr schlecht. Deshalb muss ich die Tour nochmal wiederholen...;-)

sehr schöne (kleine) Tour, die sich perfekt für einen sonnigen Vormittag oder Nachmittag eignen. Es geht zwar teilweise sehr steil hoch, allerdings ist die Tour (mit guter Kondition) auch in circa drei Stunden machbar - dennoch lieber ein bisschen mehr Zeit einplanen. ;) Auf jeden Fall lohnt sich der Anstieg und man wird mit einem traumhaften Blick belohnt. Vor Kühen sollte man allerdings keine Angst haben, da am Gipfel viele der glücklichen Tiere grasen. :)

Mir hat die Tour sehr gefallen. Sie war anspruchsvoll und sehr abwechslungsreich. Die Aussicht war super und die zwei Alpen zum einkehren sind auch klasse.
